Sooo. Went to a convention this weekend as an entourage (there were two of us, really), and it was excellent. I brought two knitting projects along and did no work on either of them, although I mastered ten new Devanagari characters. I made a fool of myself and blabbed all about being obsessed with India at the Indian lady selling things to bellydancers. I ended up buying a necklace and some bangles. She told me I should do bellydancing. I avoided responding.

These are the bangles (all photos taken by and then stolen from the webpage of the lovely Jennie):

Well, actually, that’s me with them on, looking silly. Then I left them in Jennie’s car.

I bought things from Gus Fink:

Hee. They wobble.

The husband brough his costumes. He makes lovely costumes!

And we played putt-putt. The husband beat us by three points. None of us did particularly well, but there were pirates! And a creepy cave:

And the husband dressed as the Black Knight. I wore his costume afterward. I looked a little like a compressed, curvy Black Knight, only not really. Curse you, womanly form.

Soooo… yeah. While we were in Orlando, it snowed in Atlanta. We stayed around Monday morning and played laser tag while we waited for things to clear up. Other than icy back steps, we seem to have missed it all.

This weekend we plan on going sari shopping. I am going to try very hard not to buy more movies. I have a couple sitting around, and I haven’t seen Billu Barber yet.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
